sight to the blind...

...or at least reading glasses to the old

Since there are no LensCrafters or even an opthomologist within 9 hours of here, eye care is not much of an option in Bundibugyo...unless you are friends with Pat Abbott.

For years, Pat has ministered to the elderly by providing reading glasses at a very minimal cost (and then she gives that money to BundiNutrition). As she and her friend Maureen were here for a visit, she announced on the community radio and organized at the community center a Glasses Distribution. Four hundred reading glasses were donated by a dear friend and given out today.

Maureen said it best: "You know when the glasses are the right fit because a huge smile reaches across their face. Wait for the smile. Then you know they can see."
